• {It’s in the Details} Cardigans on the Bride + Bridesmaids for Fall & Winter Weddings

    Today’s guest post comes to you from a fellow midwestern gal, Brit of Landlocked Bride, and she is sharing one of my favorite bridal accessories for fall – the cardigan! 

    While Chandra enjoys some well-deserved time off, I’ll be jumping in to one of my favorite wedding details. Cardigans! If you look in my closet it’s full of cardigans. They’re a staple in my outfits every single day in the Fall and Winter (when I’m not obsessing over cozy cable knit sweaters and scarves). And, what better way to add a touch of personality to your wedding day outfit than to throw on a colorful cardigan. cardigans for brides and bridesmaids for fall and winter weddings

    Cardigans serve a pretty practical purpose at the end of the day: to keep you warm. And, they’re great at that. But sometimes, we add a cardigan for that little something extra. cardigans for brides and bridesmaids for fall and winter weddings

    Cardigans are an easy way to add a splash of color to your wedding attire or to your bridesmaids’. They can also add softness or romance to an outfit – especially if your girls are wearing a darker color (i.e., gray or black). Cardigans can add texture, like lace, sequins or a knitted pattern. And, even more, cardigans can add a pattern for visual appeal. cardigans for brides and bridesmaids for fall and winter weddings

     If you were to wear a cardigan on your big day, what color would top your list? Or, are you a pattern girl?  Or, all of the above!?

    •  Happy 4 months my chubby bunny! It's crazy to think that 8 years ago today your pops asked me to marry him and now here you are already 4 months old. You are happy and smiling 90% of the time and still screamy 10% of the time. Much better, but your unpredictable screaminess still pops up at the times when I'm trying to get out of the house or eat, usually both at once. I can take a hint. You are 17 lbs and almost 26 inches - putting you in the 90th % for height and 80th for weight. Oh, and your head is in the 94th % - which I'm fine with since it was a nice slightly below average size when you were born. You are hilariously huge  Your daddy says if you keep growing like this people are going to start calling you Hodor You have rolled from belly to back a few times (a small miracle given your size and how little floor time you've been able to have due to your reflux), scoot yourself with your feet when laying on your back, have reached for and grabbed a toy, and are a chatterbox. You like music, like being held in sitting and standing positions, and really wanna eat your hands. You are a champion napper -- usually taking a 2-3 hr one in the morning and a good afternoon one as well. I can even put you down without soothing you to sleep first and you fall asleep on your own - something that your brothers didn't do until at least 6 months old. You're sleeping from around 7:30 pm - 7 am, waking around 3:30 for a snack (you're totally not hungry either, you just miss me). You're just the cutest with your fat rolls and cheek dimps and duck fluff hair and big gummy smiles and you have everyone of us completely smitten.  #quincysmonthbymonth  We didn't remember to take his 4 month photos today (we'll just pretend the 26th is tomorrow ) but we did manage a photo for #rednoseday. Don't forget to donate! @rednosedayusa ❣#doitforthekids
       Temporary post: I'm looking for the cutest non tacky apparel for moms and littles for 4th of July themed blog post. If you have something super cute and available online, shoot me an email to chandra@ohlovelyday.com with subject line "July 4th apparel" and a photo (flat lay preferable but on model ok) at least 600 pixels wide, price, and link to item. I'll choose a variety of my favorite 15 and will email you if yours was chosen. And tag a shop if you have seen something cute that I should check out. TIA (these cute swim shorts are by @trendybubs btw )  Talking about embracing our postpartum bodies on the blog today with photos from my shoot with @sollybabywrap when I was 10 days postpartum. Let's start a movement of embracing our real postpartum mom bods - haven't we earned it after pregnancy, labor, delivery, sleep deprivation, nursing, and everything else we put our bodies through? Head to the blog to read my thoughts on the subject - link in profile or ohlovelyday.com. And share your own postpartum photos proudly with #embraceyourmombod #battlefieldmotherhood  @maxwanger #quincyrhys #sollybaby
